you have to see this. a cheerleader does a flip while grab i grabbing a basketball and she
5:01 am
sinks it from half court. watch this. >> first time i saw this, i thought someone had to do that digitally. no, that cheerleader actually did this. she told the new york daily news she learned how to do that while playing soccer. she said she was invited to perform with the harlem globe trotters this week and she deserves that. wow! little boy in new hampshire didn't like wearing his hearing aid because he said super heroes don't wear them. so marvel comics based a new superhero on 5-year-old anthony smith after his mom wrote to them. his name is blue ear. his hearing aid calls for help far away. he hopes blue ear will inspire other hearing-impaired kids. we know that means a lot to him and his family.
5:02 am
people inside those tents. listen to that. wind and rains hard-core milwaukee brewers fans are camping out to get opening day tickets that go on sale this morning. brewers nicknamed it the arctic tailgate. some fans said they are sleeping, wrapped in three sleeping bags but others have heaters inside their tents. some said they've been waiting in line in that weather since wednesday. great to have you with us this morning. there's a lot coming up on cnn saturday morning. it starts right now. good morning. i'm victor blackwell. good to have you with us. randi kaye is off this morning. 8:00 on the east coast. 5:00 out west. thanks for starting your day right here. new england cannot catch a break for the third straight weekend. a winter storm is ready to drop snow on that region, as much as a foot and a half in some places. midwest knows this storm packs a punch. it's already roll thud that
5:03 am
area, causing trouble like what you see here. look at this you can look right into their house. heavy snow, this is in missouri, collapsed a roof at a dance school in gladstone. fortunately, no one was hurt here. chicago knows how to handle bad weather but the storm was enough to tie up traffic yesterday. it dropped fewer than three inches on the city, nothing chicago can't handle. it was still the largest amount of snow this season. and enough to cause several accidents on several streets there and, of course, on the highways. now, chicago is not alone. look at this a multi-vehicle crash shut down part of interstate 80 in iowa. semi truck lost control, smashed into a cable barrier and then a charter bus smashed into the semi, slicing it in half. carrying the simpson college softball team. no one was hurt. one player tweeted an ainngel mt
5:04 am
be watching over them. people in this building thought it was an earthquake when sheets of snow is it started sliding off the roof. described it as the sound of a thund thunderous roar. wichita saw its second highest two-day snowfall total on record. >> is this what nupg can look forward to this weekend? karen mcginnis is tracking the storm for us. that could have been dangerous if someone had been walking on that street. >> that was from an ireporter, amanda slchlt aviana. she thought it was a hurricane at first. she hurried down and got the tail end of it. it just kept going on and on and on. some areas saw nearly two feet of snow. it was widespread, affecting millions of people there. they're trying to pull everything back together after such a tremendous late winter storm system. now we're look iing at new england. the computer models all over the place. how much snow is boston going to see? boston northward, how much snow
5:05 am
is going to occur? area of low pressure will develop off the midatlantic coast, move off the coast of new england. now it's moving a little further away. still on the back side of this. probably starting later on this afternoon, between two and four. you'll see spits of rain, maybe clouds and fog. so, watch out for that. but then after about 6:00 or 7:00, you might see that snowfall develop. it looks like this will be a short but sweet event, continuing into sunday. for boston, you might expect two to four inches of snow. could back off of that just a little bit. maybe one to three inches possible. it's very hard to determine at this point what that area of low pressure is going to do exactly. interior sections of new england might see twice that amount. ru russell, kansas, saw 22" of snow. they shattered their daily snowfall record for the day. we move to the southeast. here we go. flash flood watches and warnings
5:06 am
have been issued. what about that northeast and new england? boston, two to four inches of snowfall. nothing really substantial in the way of wind. temperaturewise for the afternoon, boston looking at 34. that gives you some clue as to just how mild, relatively mild those temperatures are. victor, we continue to watch this. the west coast braces for a pacific storm system. >> everybody's getting something. >> yeah. >> karen maginnis, thank you. oscar pistorius cannot go home again, at least while the conditions of his bail are still in effect. pistorius was in the backseat of a car driven away from court by his uncle. south african magistrate granted bail for the olympian accused of murdering girlfriend reeva steenkamp. local media reports say pistorius spent the night at his uncle's house. pistorius cannot go near an airport. he had to surrender his passport and his guns. he cannot drink alcohol and he must report to police twice a
5:07 am
week. senior international correspondent nic robertson is in johannesburg. nic, this story has captured the attention of south africans -- really, people all over the world, but in south africa, what do they think about the decision to release him on bail? >> reporter: everybody has been following it here, whether it's on twitter, the headlines in the newspapers, whether it's the lead story on the television. everyone has been watching it. everyone has been talking about it. now there's a decision. it seems people are divided over this decision to let him have bail. >> eye think it's fair. i think the man is -- we don't know if he's guilty or not and to try him now is not really fair i think they set the right conditions for the bail. >> it shocked me despite all the evidence mounted up against him, he still managed to get bail. i guess it's a reflection of -- >> he has already had a visit at
5:08 am
his uncle's house. oscar pistorius has had a visit at his uncle's house from parole officers on saturday morning. he is staying in a large house, large walls, big gates. what the legal experts are saying is don't read too much into the bail hearing. it's not a proper trial. there are detailed legal arguments that haven't come out yet. >> and those will come out as the trial starts. nic robertson in johannesburg for us this morning. thank you. let's now talk about lance armstrong and the federal government is taking up the case. the government says they will join in a lawsuit for the postal service team that armstrong rode with. he admitted to using performance-enhancing drugs when he won those titles. the government says that broke the contract. microsoft is trying to figure out who carried out a brazen hacking attack. the tech giant says some of its
5:09 am
computers, including some in its business unit were infected with m malicious software known as malware but insist nos customer data was taken. microsoft is just the latest big-name company to get hacked. apple and facebook were hacked earlier this month. president obama is pressuring congress to get to wo work. he wants a deal on those forced spending cuts that go into effect march 1st if no deal gets done. that means a cut of $85 billion this year. we've been telling you what those cuts mean to you. athena jones tells us what that means to you on early education. >> reporter: dropping her grandson off at an early head start center in virginia. give me a kiss. love you. >> they're all different sizes. >> reporter: she says the preschool program for low-income families is vital to his success. >> when they do get into
5:10 am
kindergarten, they know their a, b, cs, they know how to count. my 7-year-old, she started off in early head start at 3. very smart, honor roll student and it came from early head start. >> reporter: ward supports three children by cleaning hotel rooms so she relies on head start for child care. her 3-year-old niece is on the wait list for head start but she could become up to 70,000 kids the administration says will be shut out of the program if forced spending cuts go into effect this friday. those cuts would come even as president obama pushes for preschool for all kids, including expanding head start. you are looking for a good bang for your educational buck, this is it right here. >> reporter: not everyone thinks head start is such a good idea. critics point to a government study that raises doubts about its long-term benefits. >> all the effects were gone by
5:11 am
the time kids were in kindergarten and certainly not there by the end of third grade. >> reporter: that debate aside, ward says the program works for her family. >> don't take the daycare program from the kids, innocent little kids. they don't know nothing about budget cuts. >> reporter: department of health and human services says if these cuts go through, some head start classrooms will have to close early this school year and start late in the fall. victor? >> athena jones, thank you. much more ahead this hour. here is a look at what's coming up. it's the hotel at the center of the mysterious death of a canadian tourist, but it's not the first time guests have checked in and never left. a little boy with a rare condition, desperate for a hearing aid. but his insurance company says it's not mandatory. the truth about a widespread health crisis in an exclusive cnn saturday morning report. tiger's new teammate, average joe's hoops, and the

5:32 am
for any possible delays. a lot of cities in the northeast will escape the worst of the snow, but it could still cause some headaches. we'll have a check of the weather in about 30 minutes. story number two comes from british columbia. two skiers were able to escape an avalanche. police say they were pulled out by other skiers. one other person was killed in a snow slide. search teams are fwg out today to try to recover that body. number three, last weekend it was revealed a nuclear tank was wasting or leaking nuclear waste. now the governor says six tanks at the hanford nuclear site are leaking toxic sludge. he says there is no immediate health risk but that this is disturbing. the hanford facility is considered to be the nation's most contaminated nuclear site. number four, the pentagon has grounded the entire fleet of f-35 fighter jets. a crack was found in the engine of one of the planes during a routine inspection.
5:33 am
$400 billion, the f-35 program is the most expensive weapons system in military history. five, now with no deal in sight, we are six days away from forced spending cuts that will slash $85 billion in spending and the white house is putting pressure on republicans. >> the here is the thing. these cuts don't have to happen. congress can turn them off any time with just a little compromise. they can pass a balanced plan for deficit reduction. they can cut spending in a smart way and close wasteful tax loopholes for the well-off and well-connected. unfortunately, it appears that republicans in congress have decided that instead of compromise, instead of asking anything of the wealthiest americans, they would rather let these cuts fall squarely on the middle class. >> that's the argument from the president. here is is how the gop is firing back. the fact is republicans in congress right now will provide
5:34 am
the flexibility to make the necessary spending reductions and address our deficit and debt instead of going through the sequester. in fact, house republicans have already passed two bills to replace the president's sequester. so the question is, why won't he work with us? and the answer, quite simply, is because he wants higher taxes. but the right way to address our deficit and debt and get past the sequester is not higher taxes or just better spending control. it's by decrcreating jobs, grow the economy and expanding the tax base. >> here is the bottom line. if there is no deal, then we'll see $85 billion in cuts. and when the number is that large it's really tough to put it into perspective. cnn national correspondent jim acosta explains, that is exactly what the white house is at least trying to do. sitting down with the japanese prime minister, president obama was all but saying so long to congress when it comes to those
5:35 am
forced spending cuts that are now just one week away. >> i'll continue to make my case to not only congress but the american people. >> going over the heads of gop leaders, appearing on talk radio. >> what i need listeners to do more than anything is put a little bit of pressure on congress as usual, to get their act together and do the right thing. >> the white house also sent out transportation secretary ray la hood to warn how the cuts will impact air travel. smaller communities, air traffic control towers could be closed all together. >> flights to major cities, like new york, chicago and san francisco and others could experience delays of up to 90 minutes during peak hours. >> lahood urged republicans in congress to see the movie "lincoln" to learn how to work together. >> references, what you call an acting performance, because you
5:36 am
are -- you're going to be scaring the public today. this is going to be scaring the public about their travel plans. >> well, we'll see what the reaction of the public is. what i'm trying to do is to wake up members of the congress on the republican side to the idea that they need to come to the table, offer a proposal so that we don't have to have this kind of calamity in air service in america. >> jay carney and his counterpart in the speaker's office traded tweet over who is to blame, president's approach to deficit reduction, a sign administration officials are confident public opinion is on their side. >> the fact of the matter is that we can't get anything done without a bill passing the house of representatives. >> some republicans say hold on. senator tom coburn from oklahoma sent a letter to the white house asking why some administration officials are spending money traveling the country, advising communities on how to secure
5:37 am
federal dollars, saying it is important we, as public officials, lead by example, but that won't stop wz's laashingto latest game of budget chicken, one the president seems comfortable playing. >> the sequester going into effect will not threaten, you know, the world financial system. >> reporter: once again, administration officials said they are welcome to ideas to head off these cuts. in the meantime, the president plans to visit a naval shipyard that will take a direct hit if these cuts go through. jim acosta, cnn, the white house. social media is apparently more than what you're saying or doing or thinking right now. you can also send the same types of messages after you've passed. after you're dead. companies are popping up now that will manage your accounts after you go on. you can say hello or wish

a tourist disappears in the city of angels, her body later found at the bottom of a water ta tank. we're talking about the case of elisa lam. she disappeared in january. 19 days later, 19 days, her body was found at the bottom of one of the hotel rooftop water tanks. cnn contributor paul callan joins me from new york and in studio with me, former fbi special agent harold copis. let's start with you, harold. the lapd has said they have not ruled out foul play. how can this be anything but foul play? >> there's no way. you know it's got to be. someone had to take the body up there, put it in the tank, thinking they were going to hide it and never be found. >> yeah. when they say that maybe, it's almost -- it almost has to be, right? >> there has to be. there's no way you could go through the hatch, an
5:43 am
individual. this is not a huge individual. go through the hatch, get on the roof, climb the ladder to get to the platform where the tanks are, put a ladder on that tank, climb up, open the top, get in, close it and die. no way. >> let's talk about the hotel and liability. the hotel says that the door to the rooftop was locked, but there was no lock on the water tank where lam's body was found. how much of a liability is this for the hotel, not having that tank locked? >> well, believe it or not, as horrible and disgusting as this case is, the body might have been in the water tank for 19 days and people were bathing in the water, drinking the water, brushing their teeth with the water. the case against the hotel is not a real strong case. the law basically says this is negligent infliction of emotional distress. it's an accidental causing of emotional distress and, first of all, most places probably don't lock their tanks and they don't inspect them on a regular basis.
5:44 am
so it's hard to prove it's accidental accidental. the tourists will have to prove that they were not only distressed to hear about this but they suffered physical injury. have you bad feelings of drinking water afterwards but are you physically injured by it? the law makes it very difficult to bring cases like this. >> the tests in the water there and water system says there's no harmful bacteria, but you're drinking water from a tank that had a body in there up to 19 days. let me ask you, harold, about this new video we're seeing of lam inside this elevator. she is on the elevator, standing on one side, pushing buttons for four floors, poking her head out. last shot we've seen of her the day before, i guess, she was killed. some suggest she's looking like she could be hiding with someone, being playful. what are you seeing in this video? >> i think i see someone who is hiding and especially when she looks out like, hey, what's going on? all we're seeing, though, is the
5:45 am

6:04 am
a rain/snow mix or an icy mix. as you go into interior sections of new england, that's where it's going to be the heaviest snowfall. we certainly think the higher terrain could see six, eight, possibly ten inches of snow. but even then, as the storm system starts to make its way out, further out into the atlantic, toward the east, on the back side of that, some breezy conditions and some additional snowfall going into sunday afternoon. where is the snow expected to start? right around boston. you'll see some, you know, hints of it into the afternoon. by about 5:00 or 6:00, i think the snowfall is going to start accumulate at that time. as i mentioned, i don't think it will be like what you saw two weeks ago. the view across the northeast and new england. and, wow, did this system that we saw across the central plains eventually move up to the great lakes. it walloped the central u.s. take a look at this ireport from amanda laviana.

earlier this month. the vatican is pushing back against a report that has really stunned catholics. an italian newspaper says pope benedict xvi decided to resign the same day he saw a bombshell report on an underground network of gay priests. senior international correspondent ben wedeman joins me from rome. the vatican is clearly angry, strongly worded response that says this is an attempt to influence cardinals who will choose the next pope. where is this coming from? >> panorama, a weekly magazine, suggesting or alleging that the pope on the 17th of december was given a 300-page red bound docier which documented these reports of a network of gay priests being blackmailed, according to these reports, by a
6:08 am
network of male prostitutes in rome. as you said, the vatican came out with a very strongly worded communicae from its secretary of state, calling these reports unverifiable or completely false. on the 11th of february, pope benedict xvi said he was resigning because he simply didn't have the energy to carry out his duties. these reports in the italian press -- and they're really taking off at the moment -- would, of course, argue otherwise. victor? >> so, can we really trust this reporting? you say it's taking off. i really don't know much about those two publications, but how credible are they? >> reporter: well, these publications, for instance, one of the most widely read newspapers here in italy. it's really going back to the whole vati-leaks scandal when
6:09 am
the pope's personal butler handed over hundreds of documents from the pope's private office to an y titalian journalist. at this point it's very difficult to nail down whether there is some truth to these allegations or not. going back just three years, there was, in fact, a scandal about gay priests in the vatican who were documented, who were videotaped in some cases engaging in very -- sort of acts that the vatican looks down upon. but the specific allegations being made in these two publications are, at this point, very difficult to nail down. victor? >> it's interesting, ben, that part of the response from the vatican was this was published as an attempt to influence the conclave that chooses the next po
6:10 am
pope. how could that be? how could this influence that conclave? >> there's a suggestion that cardinals who will participate in this conclave, 116 cardinals at this point, may be in some way involved in the allegations that are being put out in this alleged 300-page dossier and, therefore, their possible involvement may influence how they vote when the conclave eventually takes place. victor? >> ben wedeman on this for us from rome. thank you. jodi arias finally reveals her version of what happened the night she killed her ex-boyfriend. now it's the prosecution's turn. you can bet they're ready to pick her story apart. we'll tell you what's next in the trial of the accused murderer. 942.
